What is a home inspection and why do I need one?
A home inspection is a thorough examination of a property, typically performed by a professional inspector, to assess the condition of the property and identify any potential issues or defects. Home inspections typically include a visual examination of the property’s structure, roof, electrical and plumbing systems, HVAC, and appliances. The inspector may also check for any evidence of pests or mold and assess the overall condition of the property.
